This is so much fun to make! I’ve already taken a lot of photos for the next few “issues”. I hope you the comic. 🙂

VanCAF 2016 and Star Wars Stuff

The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is this weekend at the Yaletown Roundhouse! I will be there at a booth with Rock, Paper, Cynic. He just released a full album of amazing (i.e. geeky) songs that you’ll love, and we’ll have his books, t-shirts, posters, and other merch available.

I’ll have a few things out . . . like a new set of Star Wars haiku postcards!!! I’m so excited about these (thus the three exclamation points). They’re a great way to tell your friends how well-travelled you are through hyperspace.

I’ve also been doing a lot of photography of my Star Wars action figures lately. Force Awakens really got me re-excited about Star Wars. That and my friend Macroworlder, whose own toy-photography inspired me. I’ll be posting the beginning of a comic I’ve been writing about the pirates Sidon Ithano and Quiggold (seen offering Finn a ride in the Force Awakens). TOMORROW.

Damn he looks so cool

Pretty exciting stuff! Please come see us at the festival or drop us a line on most social media. He’s @rockpapercynic; I’m @writelightning.

May the Force be with you!


Word Vancouver Festival

A new writewithlightning post means I must be doing another convention!

The Word Vancouver festival is in full swing and I will be selling posters, postcards, and chapbooks in the Alice MacKay room of the Vancouver Public Library all day Sunday (September 27). I will also have lots of my friend Peter Chiykowski’s Rock, Paper, Cynic merchandise available too.

I will be doing my awesome d20 dice game where I make up a random adventure for you when you spend $10 at the booth. Your roll on the over-sized, purple, twenty-sided die determines the treasure (free stuff!) that you find on your quest. Sound effects will be provided by my booth helper and Vancouver film-guru Terry Boake of Fractured Frames.

I am also giving away the floppy disk in the haiku above to the first person to mention the disk to me! Innuendo based puns receive a high-five even if I’ve already given the disk away. Warning: high-fives in this transaction may be limp.

I hope you’ll come and visit my booth! It’s my first time running a booth at Word and I’m very excited about it.

Don’t forget you can follow my daily haiku on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr.

See you at the festival!


Haiku Warrior

Get your lucky set

of slick polyhedral dice:

a new RPG!

Note: this post is going to be EXTRA nerdy, so put on your Cloaking Robe of Elvenkind and let’s get this adventure going!

I’m here to tell you about Haiku Warrior: a tabletop RPG (role-playing game) card game for 1-4 players. It’s a Kickstarter campaign on now. For $20, you get the game!

I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons since I was 12 and on many occasions I have gamed with only one other friend (with one of us at the Dungeon Master and one of us as the lone hero). It’s worked very well, but I don’t imagine it’s for everyone.

That’s where Haiku Warrior comes in!

The cards act as the DM (the story-teller of the game), so (like Talisman, if you’ve played it or seen it in the background of Big Bang Theory) you can play the game with two players (or even alone, if you want!).

If you’ve played D&D or any RPG before, you’re probably going to enjoy this game made by the creator of Drinking Quest, which is an RPG / drinking game in one.

If you’ve never played an RPG before, this is a pretty great intro into a fabulous world of being a hero in a sword and sorcery world.

I’m excited about the game for two reasons:

1) I really want to play it!

2) It’s a game where every card is a haiku AND I am a stretch goal on the Kickstarter page! This means that if the game raises enough money, I will contribute a card to a bonus level of the game.

So if you like the idea of being a fantasy adventurer conquering monsters and completing quests – told exclusively in haiku – then check out the Kickstarter page! Maybe we can play it together at the Stormcrow Tavern in Vancouver.
